like this. 4:00a.m. every time it updates, it's showing less and less shower activity over us. this is diminished from what i showed you at 5:00. here we are at 7:00, 7:00 a.m. there's a little something. some drizzle up in the north bay hills, or east bay hills. this last frame at 9:00 a.m., sprinkles toward san jose. everything is going to go this way. that's that high pressure building in very rapidly, and clearing things out. it's going to be a really quick event. if you're doing work tomorrow, a pe teacher perhaps, your afternoon classes you can go outside. forecast highs tomorrow, 59 in gilroy. a little cooler in many places tomorrow. your five-day forecast with your bay area weekend in view. i think the takeaway is morning commute, morning fog, certainly wet roadways. your outdoor plans, by afternoon, i think you're back to business as usual, but the morning might be a little damp.

>> we're not looking at black ice here at all. >> no, not even close to that. mid-30s at the coldest. >> thanks bill. santa cruz county supervisors have taken the first step toward a ban on invasable bullfrogs. environmentalists say the east coast natives are driving out native frogs. they can also spread an infectious disease. supervisors are expected to fanallize that bull -- finalize that bull frog ban in february. in vancouver, a truck brought a bear into town. that's a black bear. it was spotted on top of that garbage truck earlier this week. it made some pickups out in the woods. officers eventually tranquilized the bear, and released it back into the wild. okay, a former big name leader on the warriors has just

10:55 pm
we're hoping it's a sellout so we can show it here. oakland's best player, darren mcfadden out with a bad foot. the quarterback looks to be just forcing everything and coming away with eye popping interception stats. if the loss to the packers was a measuring stick, the raiders, a country mile out of the picture. the coach has faith. >> i'm dispointed where we are. because we were in first place a couple of weeks ago, and we didn't hold onto that spot. denver is playing well. i can't do anything about what we're doing. i can only do something about what this team is doing. we need to get back to winning. by no stretch of the imagination is this thing over and done with. some day, and we hope it's soon, warrior fans will have the team they truly deserve. in the meantime, they've got to do what they do best. be patient. satisfied for the moment with baby steps. yesterday, the acquisition of kwame brown. he's in town, ready to get to

work in the middle for the warriors. he knows exactly why he's here. defense, get rebounds, and to be a huge presence inside. get it done. >> just as much as i dwight, i give back. i loved playing with guys like shaq, andrew. >> do you want dwight to get traded to l.a. so you can see him a couple more times? >> i wouldn't say that. looks like the lakers are no longer the only game in town down in l.a. the clippers have got the superstar guard chris paul. the trade from the hornets approved officially tonight. they sent gordon and chris kamen to new orleans. the hot ticket in the land of the lakers, no doubt. life has not been the same

for baron davis, or the warriors really since he left abruptly a few years ago. what they're calling amnestied. the cavaliers would rather pay out his salary, so they don't have him on the team. in this case, cleveland will pay baron davis $27 million to get out of town. man with a rubber arm, guillermo mota will again make his way out of the giants bullpen, i'm sure on many occasion. always seems ready and willing to pick up the baseball. he will receive a 1 year, $1 million contract, in other words, just kind of lunch money for barry zito. fox network and the nfc will continue doing business together. nine year extension on their current contract through 2022. it's already been agreed upon. the translation means the 49ers are going to stay right here for the most part on channel 2, and i think everybody's pretty
